Gateway Blossom -Village of Red Hook’s Memorial Park
Saturday May 10, 2014
Gateway Blossom is a site-specific piece of Public Art, by Jacob Fisher, that will be installed in the Village of Red Hook’s Memorial Park.
Over 500 white balloons will be fastened to colored strings that will hover ten feet above the ground. The overwhelming repetition of forms and the mesmerizing movement of the string and balloons, resulting from the breeze and wind, will create a dynamic piece of work that will activate and transform this under-utilized park. The playful nature of the colorful string and the innate essence of the balloons will result in a piece of inter-active art that is approachable and enjoyable for all. Gateway Blossom will exist in unison with the blossoming colors of spring and highlight the beauty of this historic park.
